About the Author

John Robert Colombo
Mr. Colombo is the Toronto-based author and anthologist whose byline has appeared on over 200 books of quality. These range from volumes of poetry to compilations of quotations. Colombo has been variously dubbed:
"The Master Gatherer" for his compilations of Canadiana.
"John 'Bartlett' Colombo" for his 'quote books.
"Canada's Mr. Mystery" for his collections of told-as-true ghost stories.
"Superfan" for his pioneering interest in Canadian fantastic literature.
Recently Mr. Colombo was the keynote speaker for the Montreal World Science Fiction Convention's academic track. Robert J. Sawyer, co-editor of Tesseracts 6 introduced "JRC". This is part of what he had to say...
"John is a towering presence in Canadian letters, a member of the Order of Canada — Canada's equivalent of knighthood — and is Canada's premiere folklorist and collector and compiler of Canadiana, as well as a significant poet, broadcaster, editor, and publisher.

Although he has 200 books to his credit, it is his six pioneering works in the field of Canadian speculative fiction that we celebrate this weekend, most significantly his massive historical retrospective Other Canadas, published in 1979 — thirty years ago — the first-ever anthology of Canadian science fiction and fantasy, a beautiful hardcover gathering 21 fiction pieces and 28 poems drawn from 400 years of Canadian history.

Prior to that book, no one had made the case that there was such a thing as Canadian science fiction and fantasy: It was John who proved to Canada's publishers, editors, academics, writers, and readers that the field actually existed.

When my wife and I edited Tesseracts 6, we dedicated the book thus: "To John Robert Colombo, whose pioneering Other Canadas blazed the trail for the all the Canadian science fiction and fantasy anthologists who followed."- Robert J Sawyer, Co-editor Tesseracts 6.
Colombo has won numerous awards including:
Ontario Library Association's Certificate of Merit
Periodical Distributors of Canada's Best Paperback of the Year 1976
Centennial Medal, 1967
Esteemed Knight of Mark Twain
Order of Cyril and Methodius (1st class)

Brett Alexander Savory
The Bram Stoker Award-winning Editor-in-Chief of ChiZine: Treatments of Light and Shade in Words, Co-Publisher with Sandra Kasturi of ChiZine Publications (CZP), has had nearly 50 short stories published, written two novels and penned the foreword to Tesseracts Twelve.
